"Constraining" Obama

Updated on April 4, 2013

Disdain For The US Constitution?

Or Disdain for A Tyrant?

George W. Bush wasn't a saint but Barack Insane Obama makes him look like he is the best thing since sliced bread. I disdain a tyrant, or anyone in a position of authority, who acts like one. You're seeing one upfront and personal anytime Obama speaks America. I have to take a break at times to catch my political breath ever since Obama assumed office. He makes Bush look boring with his outrageous conduct, speech and narcissistic personality.

Obama gives new meaning to the term "political theater." He uses his props, be they doctors, fire fighters, law enforcers and very young children in his pathetic demagoguery. He is shameless in his acting like he is incensed with the way the world is. You go ahead Obama because only people stupid enough to be continually misled and lied to listen to a thing you say at this point. You have destroyed your own credibility by yourself without too much assistance from anyone else.. This is going somewhere as usual so keep reading.

Facts are facts and what we see concerning gun control legislation is misguided political crapola. There is not one thing in any of his proposals, or the US Senate's proposals, that will contribute to a NOT having a repeat of Aurora, Colorado or Sandy Hook in Connecticut. Short of gun confiscation , which may apparently be the ultimate goal, there is nothing there that addresses changing the "culture of violence" that causes these misguided souls to do what they will do. His suggestion that no one cares about kids except himself and his party is pathetic political demagoguery. Then he plays the "save one just one life by his legislation" schtick goes over the edge.

The fact is that he has disdain for the US Constitution. If you think he was a Constitutional law professor I have a bridge that I'll sell you. So lets back up to this past Wednesday and see exactly what he said and review it. The language he used should concern anyone who values their freedom to repel tyranny when need be. I can actually hear King George III using this rationale.

Obama out in Colorado said any concerns about gun seizures and background checks being hand-in-hand as a means to achieve gun confiscation are empty theories. Really? A study of history and tyrants and the disarmament of the populace dispute that Obama. The Second Amendment is what it is and says what it says for a specific purpose even though Obama sees it as an inconvenience in achieving his means.

His specific language is worrisome in light of what we know about history and tyrants and governmental tyranny. Now here's the problem in a nut shell. This is what he said, "You hear some of these folks: ‘I need a gun to protect myself from the government. We can’t do background checks because the government’s going to come take my guns away.’ The government’s us. These officials are elected by you. … I am constrained as they are constrained by the system that our founders put in place.”

Note that he siad he is constrained from getting his way by a system that the founding fathers put in place. That would be the United States Constitution. In particular the Second Amendment that had everything to do with dissuading a powerful central government from running over the citizenry and nothing to do with hunting. Just a little document standing between Barack Insane Obama and tyranny. Well DUH! You liberals getting his drift yet?

History makes Obama's rationale problematic. Yes, we do live in an elective Republic. This is a democratic republic and not a democracy so lets be clear on that issue. Tyranny is possible in a democratic republic despite what Obama just laid out there for the low information voters among us. Hitler was elected by the people's of Germany. Benito Mussolini used Italy's constitution to worm his way to the top. In the Gaza, how did Hamas obtain power? Take the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt right at this very moment and do a correlation. Get the picture?

So now understand this about your "rights." If what Obama, or any other tin horn dictator in the world wants to feed you, says is true you derive your rights from the government that the ignorant can elect by a majority of the ignorant. Our nation wasn't founded with that concept in mind. What that says is that if stupid people elect a politician(s) by a majority vote that they can trample all over our God given rights at their own whim. I say that is nonsense.

Our rights are guaranteed despite the actions of any government, not because of it. Our rights didn't come from "us" as Obama would have have you believe. They don't come down on high from any government but from God, your Creator or Nature or whatever you think created you.

The Founders Understood...

See Obama wants you to now believe that the government is "us." It's not. Those are our elected representatives who are supposed to do the will of the people, not what they think is best for us. They have it backwards with Obama leading the charge. Define a pure democracy and you will understand the flaws in Obama's argument. Even if we were a pure democracy we wouldn't have the right to stomp on the rights of anyone else. That's insanity. Is that what this nation has come to where we will tolerate insanity and utter nonsense while forfeiting our God given rights?

The Second Amendment is one of the pillars of The Bill of Rights. It was placed there to make sure that the people have the ability to deal with a tyrant. Obama's logic on Wednesday was Chum logic and misguided. Looking back at history and the control of a people's firearms should give you pause to realize where it leads. It's called fascism and oppression of the people. King George III couldn't get away with it. What makes Barack Insane Obama think he can?

"Vote It," "Like"It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

      I think I have to agree, getting over this idea of politically correct thinking needs to begin by thinking of 'PC' as a stamp of approval by Propaganda Control. Speech is still free if it is not PC, it's just not approved.

      I totally agree with you there, Mike and it also demonstrates the dangers of not teaching history for it most certainly will repeat itself. We have to get over this politically correct thinking and decide that we have a history far more rich in things done right than wrong. Children must know their heritage and the value of protecting it. All the more reason for getting the federal government out of the education system. ~WB

      Wayne - We must keep in mind that many of todays youth have little or no knowledge of history. I'm not certain they even teach history these days, and am sure what is taught has a very liberal spin on the context.

      So relying on a voters knowledge of history to steer them in the right direction is a lost hope.

      Hitler assured the German people that they could give up their weapons....their government would protect them. We see how that came out. The dirt-bag commies from Chicago have rode the race card right into Washington and now want to employ their form of politics in transforming this nation into a socialist nightmare complete with a self-loving tryrant for the position of Presidential Emperor. Obama has nothing whatsoever in his track record to show that he has any ability to be trusted in terms of his opinion, his promises, or his desires. This country cannot be rid of this scourge quick enough. ~WB

      The latest reported on gun control is a proposal that gun-owners have to buy gun insurance in case they hurt someone with a gun. Given the precedent with Health Care, this will be pass, be challenged in the Supreme Court by the States, be ruled a tax, and therefore Constitutional. The precedent has been established.

      You'll still have a right to own a gun; you'll just have to pay off the government bureaucracy so they can handle the cost of Health Care incurred by the irresponsible and by criminals.

      Never let a good crisis go to waste.

      Great Hub Frog. Up and all across, except "funny." Sadly I wish this was funny, but it's all too serious. Were Americans to be disarmed, the Obama Administration would gut every power and right of the Congress, courts, and the People. Many of them he has already gutted. Even the most innocuous federal gun control at first will lead to escalation after escalation via new bills, amendments, and EO's. The only solution is to never let there be an initial foothold. If Sen. Paul's planned filibuster fails, Obama will shoot for the sky, and very well may reach it.

      Frog, I particularly like your point about rights not being granted by the government. As I understand it, this is one of the fundamental differences between how the United Nations views rights (rights are granted by the government), and how the United States views rights (rights are granted by the Creator to the individual), and the reason why we should tread cautiously with respect to any treaty with the United Nations. The problems with accepting even the appearance that a government grants rights, is that we will become prone to accepting that as the norm, and once that happens, whoever controls the government will believe they have the power to take away those rights.

      Our forefathers captured that sentiment best in our Declaration of Independence -- We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. -- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ...“

      We fought a war to live by this concept.

      Frog: Well, Jim, if your keyboard DOES go silent 'cause the black helicopters got you, we'll at least know the canary died. That is, if you get taken out for voicing your PROTECTED OPINION (First Amendment to that Tired Old Document), the rest of us might have half a millisecond to cowboy up. Which has ever been the situation for the man walking point; he's the canary in the coal mine, the tip of the spear, and the first to take the hit when he's sharp enough to spot the ambush before the entire patrol can be enveloped.

      Just saying--and keeping an eye out, just to confirm that you're still there.

      Irrefutable logic as ever FP and we had one such person in the UK, if you remember Tony Blair, who was also a Lawyer with a team of Lawyer friends and they could always bend the truth to suit their argument.

      I very much believe that he studied Constitutional law. He studied it to find any flaws that he might use to get around it. He is a very dangerous man.

      Constrained by the Constitution, huh? Well, we do live in a world of Disneyland, where nothing bad ever happens, so maybe he has a point.

      I don't get to Hubpages much anymore, Frog Prince, so I'm thanking Poetvix, our mutual friend, for sharing your hub with Facebook.

      Good hub and keep moving forward.

      There are no bounds to that man's hypocrisy. I can't believe he's actually using the Constitution, the document he's been attacking since he stole the office in his puked out propaganda. He's damn dangerous. Under his rule, we have less privacy, we have less money, we have more taxes, we have more hate and now if he gets his way we won't have the right to defend ourselves either. I wonder how many people are starting to wake up and smell the impending bad. No one wants an unarmed populace more than those looking for easy prey.

      Jim, I know you will not believe this, but there are many who view his actions as great leadership. They are with him in believing that that darn Constitution and the Bill of Rights are just tired old documents that get in the way of progress. You will no doubt receive comments from our friends on the left correcting your thinking on this matter. Gosh, how could a career Military person like yourself know anything about great leadership?

      That guy living in the Section 8 housing, with food stamps and a free cell phone will get you straightened out, just wait and see.
